A big congratulations to Christopher Van Straten, Jackpocket’s newest BIG winner. Chris from Plymouth, Minnesota is celebrating a $153,253 payday after taking home the Northstar Cash jackpot last month!
According to Chris, “I always believed I would win someday.” And on May 24, his shining Northstar Cash ticket came through! Chris’s Quick Pick matched all five numbers 5 12 20 24 28 from the May 24 drawing to win grand prize.
Chris stopped by Jackpocket to pick up his winning Northstar Cash ticket with his wife Alexandra, who had encouraged him to download our lottery app after hearing us on the radio. (Nice call, Alexandra!) The couple’s next stop? The Minnesota State Lottery Office to claim that big check!
Let’s put this win into perspective, shall we? The odds of hitting the Northstar Cash jackpot are 1 in 169,911. And, the $153,253 prize is the biggest Northstar Cash jackpot (so far!) in 2019.
Chris and Alexandra plan to use the windfall to pay off their student loans. 📚 Congrats, you two!
